This ministry organizes evening presentations of guest speakers on grief and loss. Volunteers can also be trained to conduct wake services on behalf of the parish.
HANDLING GRIEF THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS
Holidays and special days such as birthdays and anniversaries are extremely difficult for those who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Although there are no easy ways to cope with heartache, this series will provide support and suggestions for "Handling Grief through the Holidays." The content of each week's session builds upon the previous week, so participants benefit most by attending all sessions. "Healing the Heart" is offered as a community service at no charge by Reverence Hospice a service of St. John Providence Health System and the hosting church. These groups are open to any adult who has lost a loved one due to death.
